Lutherans: ‘Please read Scripture and the Book of Concord, and let me know if you have any questions.’

Eastern Orthodox: ‘Read these eight-seven books written by Father Sandybeard, Hierodesertus of Smyrna, and then get back to me for your next assignment.’


The simple fact of the matter is that the Eastern Orthodox are, essentially, irrelevant in the West. The only reason I (and others) spend time engaging them is because they are actively seeking to undermine the Western Church and are preying on young men who are struggling to make sense of and find stability in our decaying world.

If they weren’t predatory and subversive, I would simply ignore the Eastern Orthodox.
